European electrical equipment, fittings and fixtures have wires coloured as follows:

As always, if you are in doubt about what to do, the best advice anyone should give you is to call a licensed electrician to advise what work is needed. Before you do any work yourself,
on electrical circuits, equipment or appliances,
always use a test meter to ensure the circuit is, in fact, de-energizedIF YOU ARE NOT ALREADY SURE YOU CAN DO THIS JOB
